Red Devil comeback falls short vs. Minuteman
The Chelsea High baseball team spotted Minuteman Regional a 7-0 lead after two innings, but the Red Devils battled back and just fell short in an eventual 10-8 loss to the Minutemen.
Chelsea sliced the deficit to 7-6 with a six run rally in the third. Minuteman responded with three runs in the fifth, but the never-say-die Red Devils responded with two tallies in the top of the seventh and had the bases loaded before Minuteman was able to get the game-ending out.
Leading the way for Chelsea at the plate were Luis Jimenez, who was 2-for-5 with two RBI, and Eduardo Nunez, who scored two runs and added an RBI.
Luis Rodriguez pitched a complete game for the Red and Black, striking out nine Minutemen and giving up only six earned runs.
Earlier in the week the Devils dropped a 10-0 decision to Greater Lowell. The score was a 0-0 deadlock going into the third inning, but Greater Lowell scored three times in the third and added seven in the fourth to put the game away.
Red Devil Manny Ortiz made his first varsity start on the mound, yielding only six earned runs. Andony Turcios had two hits for Chelsea.
